Charlotte was baptized October 17th at St. Joseph's in Starkville and it was such a beautiful occasion. What a sacred moment, watching our little girl enter into the door of the Church, surrounded by family and friends. And it was such a blessing to have everyone join us in our home and at our home church. Special thanks go out to Charlotte's god-parents, Art and Chloe Busch (Jude's sister and brother-in-law), who flew in from Ohio to be present. And we appreciate our family members that drove in from Louisiana to be there, also. We know the drive is hard and we are so grateful that you were accommodating to our needs.
And to our Starkville community, you people are so gracious! When we started looking for a new job a year ago and discerning where God was leading us, we began praying for good holy friends. Please know that God has answered our prayers in you and we don't go a day without being thankful for your friendships! At the same time, we deeply miss our friends back in Illinois (you know who you are!) and in Louisiana. You are often on our minds, too!
